Take That star Owen checks into rehab
Take That star Mark Owen was in rehab at a clinic today after confessing his battles with womanising and drink.
His spokesman confirmed Owen, 38, had been checked into a "private clinic" after a turbulent week in which he apologised for having a string of affairs behind his wife's back and then said he had an alcohol problem.
Owen, who has often been seen as a "squeaky clean" member of the reunited group, previously said he was "deeply sorry" for the "pain" he had caused to his wife and friends through his flings with as many as ten women.
The pop star and his wife Emma, who have two children, married only last October but have been together for five years.
His spokesman would not disclose which clinic Owen had attended but said "he had been checked in" during recent days.
In a confession to The Sun this week, he said he had seen a number of women over the years during his relationship.
Owen also branded himself "a prat", disclosing that he was seeing a therapist in a bid to "sort things out".
He broke the news of his infidelity to his wife at their London home on Wednesday.
He said his confession would help them to move on, and he wanted to be with his wife "for life".
"It's going to do good in the long run. It's for the best, this," he said.
